how to reduce amygdala activity?

Posted by farshad on February 15, 2018, at 17:16:16

I was told the Notch receptors, trkB and trkC receptors, and androgen receptors; and any ligand that stimulates the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex will decrease activity in the amygdala.

Can anyone explain further of each of these? And which drugs have an effect on these?

I also was told Glutamatergic N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors when activated heavily suppress the amygdala so now im intrested in trying n-methyl-d-aspartic acid .

and also I was told the nicotinic Alpha-7-receptor controls much the activity in and out of the amygdala, by antagonising it, activity is drastically reduced.

Any other things? Im interested in learning more about them...

What are your current symptoms?

What drugs or other substances are you taking right now?

Not wanting to preach to the choir - we're all power users here, right, but I confess I had no idea of how the amygdala is involved in emotions & other brain functions. The following link may be useful if you're as clueless as me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amygdala#Function

The amygdala is a huge player. Here's a promising way to regulate it:
